The Heart of Yoga.

I’m feeling very fortunate and blessed to have had the opportunity to study with the fantastic Mark Whitwell. Wendy had made the journey to study with him earlier this year and certainly brought many gifts home, which inspired me to join her on her return to the beautiful Ojai Valley in California. A student of luminaries such as TKV Krishnamacharya, Desikachar and J Krishnamurti amongst others, Marks presence and teaching gets right to the heart of ourselves, the place where we connect with the breath, with ourselves, others and life itself, this is Yoga, this is Tanta.
“Yoga is not a means to get SOMEWHERE as if you were not SOMEWHERE already. It is your direct and intimate participation with Life”. – Mark Whitwell
